Yudin (male) and Yudina (female) (Russian: Юдин, Юдина) are Russian surnames derived from the name Yuda, a russified version of the former calendar name Jude (given after Jude the Apostle, no longer in use).[1] In Belarus and Western Ukraine the origin might be the Catholic name Judith. Also adopted by Jews following the Partitions of Poland, in reference to a village name Yudino or meaning "the son/daughter of Jude".[2] Not related to the word Jew.
